Workshop: The Senses and the Sea. Exploring Maritime Remembrance Through Sensual Experience.

The workshop will mainly focus on maritime landscapes and seascapes as a space of experience and sensual perception shaping different collective memories beyond historiography. The research aims to examine whether having access to the sea through sensory perception can be considered immersion and what other implications this has for our understanding of memory. Additionally, we aim to explore how focusing on sensory perception can help us include non-human living beings in the historical analysis of maritime spaces.
